Itu (derivative of Mitu or Mitra) is considered as the Vegetation-deity.
However, homosexuality is illegal in many countries (including India) so the question of boys legally suffering at tender ages does not arise.
Not only is Sodomy (rape of a male by another male) a crime, even a consensual relationship between two males is a crime in the eyes of the law.
If they want to marry off their daughter at the age of 16 it’s okay according to the law, but if they find out that their daughter has run away with someone or is having sex with someone and they don’t like it, they can take legal action and have the boy thrown into jail. When it comes to Britain, it’s interesting that there is a debate on about this age from 16 to 12 years.

The men who have sex with children have nothing to fear! Neither the girl, nor society demands that they take responsibility.One can only hope that the Age of Consent is never reduced in India.Mature enough to make the right decision, after evaluating the consequences?Mature enough to be able to judge the character of the boy they are entering into a relationship with? We don’t need early sex in modern societies Early sex is fine for tribal societies – but wrong for our modern way of life.There are far too many teens being married off in semi-urban and rural India.This brings on early pregnancy and consequent health problems, which is what women’s organisations and NGO’s want to avoid.
